Rabbit vibrators have gotten no shortage of attention in the media. With iconic mentions everywhere from Sex and the City to O Magazine, they’re one of the most sought-after sex toys for folks across the globe. Yet, despite their ubiquity, it’s not always crystal clear what they are, how to use them or how to find one that’s right for you.

Well, because we drank close to a gallon of coffee today, we decided to remedy that problem for you. Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about rabbit vibrators, including what they are, why they are, and how they got that name.

What is a Rabbit Vibrator?

Also known as a dual-stimulator, rabbit vibrators are toys that combine vaginal penetration with clitoral stimulation for an integrated, intense feeling most often described as a “blended orgasm” or “blended pleasure.”

Rabbit vibrators get their name from Vibratex’s prototypical original, the Rabbit Pearl. Released in decades ago in 1984, the Rabbit Pearl had small, soft bunny ears on its external portion that fluttered and flickered on either side of the clit as the toy vibrated, and a row of rotating beads on its shaft designed to pleasure the G-spot or vagina. Modern iterations of the rabbit vary considerably, but whether it’s for sentimental reasons or the sake of pure, unabashed cute-factor, rabbit vibrators have managed to retain their original name.

Much like real rabbits, today’s rabbit vibes come in many species. Some have clitoral stimulators that look more like fingers or knubs, while others have shafts that move, rotate or thrust. Yet while the different combinations of clitoral stimulators and shafts are more limitless than Bradley Cooper in Limitless, the purpose is still the same: simultaneous internal and external pleasure.

How Does a Rabbit Vibrator Work?

By definition, rabbit vibrators have both a shaft used for vaginal penetration and an external clitoral stimulator. By targeting these areas with different sensations like vibration, suction, rotation or thrusting, rabbit vibrators allow for stimulation of multiple erogenous zones at the same time.

It’s pretty nifty.

How to Use a Rabbit Vibrator

1. Power it up.

If your rabbit is battery-powered, make sure it’s got fresh batteries. If it’s rechargeable, make sure you’ve charged it for a good, long while so you’re not sidelined by the scourge of SRBS (Sudden Rabbit Death Syndrome.) It’s very sad.

2. Get acquainted with the controls.

With any new toy, it can be tempting to rush into things before you’ve gotten to know it first. That’s usually fine –– most toys are pretty intuitive –– but with rabbit vibrators, it can be especially helpful to study the controls first.

Why? Rabbit vibrators simply have more buttons. Because there is both a shaft and a clitoral stimulator to work with, and because you can operate them independently of each other in many toys, there are usually more controls that do more things than there are on your average non-rabbit toy. Many rabbit vibrators also rotate or stimulate the G-spot with wave-like “come hither” motions, so knowing which buttons control which functions (and which control the speed, intensity and patterns of these functions) can help you find the combination of settings that’s most fun for you.

… Of course, some rabbits are a lot simpler than that. If that’s the case for you, disregard this message.

3. Lube, lube, lube.

Lube makes everything better. For increased comfort and sensation, apply some lube that’s compatible with your toy material to both the vibrator and your body. If you don’t know what material your toy is made from, stick with water-based lube. It’s universal –– you can use it with anything.

4. Put it in position.

Insert the shaft of the vibrator in the vagina deep enough so that the clitoral stimulator is flush up against the clitoris. You might have to adjust your position or the toy so that it’s making contact with the right spots.

There’s no wrong or right position to use a rabbit vibrator in. Some folks use it on their backs; while others flip over onto their stomachs so they can grind against the clit stimulator with a bit more force. Similarly, rabbit vibes can easily be held in place by a partner in whatever position feels good to be in.

If the urge to use your rabbit anally should strike –– go for it! Most rabbit vibrators are safe for anal. The clitoral stimulator acts as a base and will keep it from getting pushed up too far.

5. Turn it on.

Remember a few minutes ago when you figured out the controls? Excellent. Turn the rabbit on and set the controls to your liking. Starting on the lowest setting can help you gradually increase your pleasure for a stronger climax, but you can also start anywhere then experiment with different levels of intensity as you go.

6. Do whatever feels good.

Once you’re lubed up, in position and have your rabbit locked and loaded on your favorite setting combination, the rest is up to you.

You can leave it in place and pulse your kegels on it for a hands-free experience, thrust it in and out, turn it around so the clit stimulator is on the perineum, or use it while you’re giving or getting head. Hell, you can even slide your undies on over it and walk around your house like you own the place. Get creative, remember they’re just as fun for partnered sex as they are for solo play, and do what works for you.

One thing to be aware of is that if you thrust it in and out with long or shallow strokes, the clit stimulator won’t always be in contact with the body. That’s fine if it feels good to remove it and put it back everytime you thrust, but if you want full contact the whole time, focus on shorter, deeper strokes or grind your hips back and forth on it for an in-and-out motion.
